Not much church-state separation

Newly appointed state Rep. Leonard Christian will take his oath of office Sunday during the morning service at New Life Church in the Spokane Valley.

Christian was appointed this week to fill the seat left open by the retirement of Larry Crouse. The 2014 legislative session starts at noon Monday and Christian said he wanted to be sworn in where relatives, friends and constituents could attend. He said he also wanted to make a statement on his view of the separation of church and state, which he believes does not mean God should be absent from public schools and government.

“Some people are saying you can’t have the two together,” Christian said. “I believe the go together more than some people let on.”

He’ll take the oath of office from Spokane District Judge Richard Leland during the 10:45 a.m. service at the church at 10920 E. Sprague.
